That's very cool. Rio would be a great one to go to.

I'm surprised Chicago didn't at least get out of the first round. Atlanta effect?

Congrats to Rio!

Although I would've picked Madrid, but Rio is just as good. There'll be some spectacle at the opening ceremony when 2016 comes around!

Isn't alcohol legal in the UAE?

I think Dubai would host a pretty sick Olympics, I mean they'd come up with some KRAZY stadiums.

Of course, once that novelty wears off, yeah, maybe it'd suck.

Bummer that Chicago didn't get it.

But if the USA gets a summer games any time soon, I'd love to see NYC get it. It's amazing that NYC has never gotten to host the olympics.

i can't quite recall, maybe they don't sell it or something...?

a quick wiki search tells me:

Quote:
The laws of the UAE tolerate alcohol to a certain extent. However, public bars and nightclubs in the UAE operate mainly in hotels and clubs, much like in Qatar, although some do operate independently.

Glad to see that South America can finally host the Olymipics.

you're goddam right we hosted it twice.

sad thing is i'm going to have to wait 50 years before we're a chance again and then what are the chances of it being held anyone but the sporting capital of the world, or sydney?

le sigh

Don't think we're that much of a long shot, but we'll probably have to wait until 2032 at the earliest for one in Australia.

Brisbane have shown interest in one, which would be a downright ordinary Games in my reckoning, cause the town is unremarkable and culturally derelict. Sydeny are just plain shite, so they shouldn't have another one.

Melbourne 2036, get on it!

I always swell with pride when people rave about how glorious Sydeny 2000 was. They often forget how it was Melbourne who hosted an Olympic Games a whopping 44 years before Shitney. Fuck, we are good. The first to be hosted in the Southern Hemisphere, and no one can take that away from us. Furthermore, we were close to hosting '96, a questionable bidding campaign where Atlanta's Coca-Cola money was apparently floating around. Imagine that, there would never have been a Sydney 2000, but 2 Melbourne Olympics.
